An Invitation to Provide Invocations Before Meeting of the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners
An Invitation to Provide Invocations Before Meeting of the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners.
The religious leaders or chosen leaders of any assembly that periodically and regularly meets in Forsyth County for the purpose of worshiping or discussing their religious perspectives are invited to offer an invocation before a meeting of the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners.
Those interested should contact the Clerk to the Board in writing by e-mail or U.S. Mail.
The Board generally meets on the second and fourth Monday nights of every month except the month of December, in which it meets on the first and third Monday nights.
This opportunity is voluntary, and invocation speakers are free to offer the invocation according to the dictates of their own conscience. The Board requests only that the prayer opportunity not be exploited as an effort to convert others to the particular faith of the invocational speaker, threaten damnation, nor to disparage any faith or belief different than that of the invocational speaker.
